Neurologic Exam Cranial Nerves Normal : Cranial Nerve II- Visual fields Cranial Nerve II- Visual fields There are several different screening tests that can be used to assess visual fields at the bedside. First hold up both hands superiorly and inferiorly and ask the patient if they can see both hands and do they look symmetric. Then test each eye individually using your fingers in the four quadrants of the visual field and ask the patient to count fingers held up or point to the hand when a finger wiggles using yourself as a control. A second screening test is to use a grid card. Have the patient focus on the dot in the center of the grid then ask if any part of the grid is missing or looks different. A third method is to use a cotton tip applicator. Testing one eye at a time ask the patient to say "now" as soon as they see the applicator come into their side vision as they focus on the examiner's nose. All of these tests are screening tests. Formal perimetry is the most accurate way of assessing visual fields

NeuroLogic Exam: Mental Status-Normal: Gnosis Gnosis Gnosis is the ability to recognize objects perceived by the senses especially somatosensory sensation. Having the patient (with their eyes closed) identify objects placed in their hand (stereognosis) and numbers written on their hand (graphesthesia) tests parietal lobe sensory perception.

Neurologic Exam Cranial Nerves Normal : Vergence Vergence Vergence eye movements occur when the eyes move simultaneously inward (convergence) or outward (divergence) in order to maintain the image on the fovea that is close up or far away. Most often convergence is tested as part of the near triad. When a patient is asked to follow an object that is brought from a distance to the tip of their nose the eyes should converge, the pupil will constrict and the lens will round up (accommodation).

NeuroLogic Exam: Mental Status-AbNormal: Dominant parietal lobe function Dominant parietal lobe function This patient has right-left confusion and difficulty with simple arithmetic. These are elements of the Gertsmann syndrome, which is seen in lesions of the dominant parietal lobe. The full syndrome consists of right-left confusion, finger agnosia, agraphia and acalculia.
NeuroLogic Exam: Mental Status-Normal: Orientation, Memory Orientation, Memory Asking questions about month, date, day of week and place tests orientation, which involves not only memory but also attention and language. Three-word recall tests recent memory for which the temporal lobe is important. Remote memory tasks such as naming Presidents, tests not only the temporal lobes but also heteromodal association cortices.
Neurology Section of APTA The Neurology Section is one of the fastest growing sections of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) and we are pleased that you have taken this opportunity to learn more about us. The Neurology Section is one of 18 specialty sections within the APTA. The Neurology Section was formed in 1972 and currently has approximately 3700 members. The mission of the Neurology Section is to serve neurologic physical therapy providers and to advance evidence-based practice, education, and research in neurologic physical therapy. The vision of the Neurology Section is to be a leading partner in the national and international rehabilitation communities by facilitating collaborative relationships, promoting knowledge translation, and influencing policy. There are six special interest groups within the Section which include Stroke, Balance and Falls, Brain Injury, Spinal Cord Injury, Degenerative Diseases, and Vestibular Rehabilitation. These special interest groups provide a forum to discuss advances in practice and the challenges of patient care within these specialty areas.
NeuroLogic Exam Videos : Somatosensory Tracts Somatosensory Tracts Now let's add the 2 ascending sensory systems that give us important clinical information for localizing lesions in the neuroaxis. The first system is the spinothalamic tract (pain and temperature) diagramed in light blue and the second is the Dorsal Column- Medial Lemniscus system (discrimatory touch and position sense) outlined in dark blue. Two important anatomical (and hence clinical) points about these two systems: 1. The spinothalamic tracts cross almost immediately upon entering the cord but the Dorsal Column tracts don't cross until they reach the level of the medulla. 2. The course of these two sensory systems have a different "x" location until they reach the rostal pons where they are then in close proximity to each other for the remainder of their climb to the thalamus and on to the sensory cortex. The clinical importance of these two anatomical facts will be become apparent as we discuss the sensory exam.

NeuroLogic Exam: Mental Status-AbNormal: Judgement-abstract reasoning Judgement-abstract reasoning The patient gives the correct answer for a house on fire and his answers for similarities are also good. He has problems with proverb interpretation. His answers are concrete and consist of rephrasing the proverb or giving a simple consequence of the action in the proverb. Problems with judgement, abstract reasoning, and executive function can be seen in patients with frontal lobe dysfunction.

Neurologic Exam Cranial Nerves Normal : Cranial Nerves 2 & 3- Pupillary Light Reflex Cranial Nerves 2 & 3- Pupillary Light Reflex The afferent or sensory limb of the pupillary light reflex is CN2 while the efferent or motor limb is the parasympathetics of CN3. Shine a flashlight into each eye noting the direct as well as the consensual constriction of the pupils. The swinging flashlight test is used to test for a relative afferent pupillary defect or a Marcus Gunn pupil. Swinging the flashlight back and forth between the two eyes identifies if one pupil has less light perception than the other. Shine the flashlight at one eye noting the size of both pupils. Then swing the flashlight to the other eye. If both pupils now dilate then that eye has perceived less light stimulus (a defect in the sensory or afferent pathway) than the opposite eye.
NeuroLogic Exam: Mental Status-Normal: Expressive language Expressive language In assessing expressive language it is important to note fluency and correctness of content and grammar. This can be accomplished by tasks that require spontaneous speech and writing, naming objects, repetition of sentences, and reading comprehension.
NeuroLogic Exam: Mental Status-AbNormal: Expressive language Expressive language This patient with expressive aphasia has normal comprehension but her expression of language is impaired. Her speech output is nonfluent and often limited to just a few words or phases. Grammatical words such as prepositions are left out and her speech is telegraphic. She has trouble saying no ifs , ands or buts. Her ability to write is also effected. Patients with expressive aphasia are aware of their language deficit and are often frustrated by it. Recovery can occur but is often incomplete with their speech consisting of short phrases or sentences containing mainly nouns and verbs.
Neurologic Exam Cranial Nerves Normal : Cranial Nerve 8- Auditory Acuity, Weber & Rinne Tests more medical video and 3d medical animation visit Cranial Nerve 8- Auditory Acuity, Weber & Rinne Tests The cochlear division of CN 8 is tested by screening for auditory acuity. This can be done by the examiner lightly rubbing their fingers by each ear or by using a ticking watch. Compare right versus left. Further screening for conduction versus neurosensory hearing loss can be accomplished by using the Weber and Rinne tests. The Weber test consists of placing a vibrating tuning fork on the middle of the head and asking if the patient feels or hears it best on one side or the other. The normal patient will say it is the same in both ears. The patient with unilateral neurosensory hearing loss will hear it best in the normal ear while the patient with a unilateral conductive hearing loss will hear it best in the abnormal ear. The Rinne test consists of comparing bone conduction (placing the tuning fork on the mastoid process) versus air conduction (placing the tuning fork in front of the pinna). Normally, air conduction is greater than bone conduction. For neurosensory hearing loss air conduction is still greater than bone conduction but for conduction hearing loss bone conduction will be greater than air conduction

Neurologic Exam Cranial Nerves Normal : Cranial Nerve 5- Motor more medical video and 3d medical animation visit us on Cranial Nerve 5- Motor The motor division of CN 5 supplies the muscles of mastication (temporalis, masseters, and pterygoids). Palpate the temporalis and masseter muscles as the patient bites down hard. Then have the patient open their mouth and resist the examiner's attempt to close the mouth. If there is weakness of the pterygoids the jaw will deviate towards the side of the weakness. The last test for this nerve is testing for a jaw jerk, which is a stretch reflex. Have the patient slightly open their mouth then place your finger on their chin and strike your finger with a reflex hammer. Normally there is no movement. If there is a jaw jerk it is said to be positive and this indicates an upper motor neuron lesion.

Creating Super Puppies- Early Neurological Stimulation The US military did studies on raising puppies, and they found that doing certain exercises with puppies during the time of rapid neurological growth, between the puppies third and six***th day of life would increase the pups performance in later life. They created a program called the Bio Sensor program consisting of 5 exercises to be done once a day with the pups. They found that not only were puppies able to cope more with stressful situations, and problem solve better than other puppies, but that they were actually physically healthier with higher cardiovascular performance, stronger immune systems, adrenal glands and heart beats. The exercises should only be repeated once a day, as the point is to add mild stress. More than once, and it could be overwhelming and could have the reverse effect on the puppies. Natural handling should also be a big part of rearing puppies, and these exercises are not a replacement for that! These exercises should be followed up by environmental enrichment, and socialization as the puppies grow. Thanks to Dr. Carmen Battaglia who published an article on this subject, many breeders have started implementing early Neurological stimulation in their breeding programs. Google: Early Neurological Stimulation and Dr. Carmen Battaglia to find his article on the Internet, which explains the exercises in greater detail.

NeuroLogic Exam Videos : Introduction "Window" to the Brain Anatomy and pathology of the nervous system is understood by directly visualizing it. This is best accomplished by handling the brain (or model of the brain as the case may be) and dissecting or taking it apart for direct examination. The purpose (for the clinician) of understanding neuroanatomy and neurophysiology is to be able to use that knowledge to solve clinical problems. The first step in solving a clinical problem is anatomical localization. So, if one cannot directly inspect the patient's brain, how is this localization accomplished? The "window" to the patient's brain is the neurological examination. The neuro exam is a series of tests and observations that reflects the function of various parts of the brain. If the exam is approached in a systematic and logical fashion that is organized in terms of anatomical levels and systems then the clinician is lead to the anatomical location of the patient's problem.

NeuroLogic Exam: Mental Status-AbNormal: Gnosis Gnosis With his right hand the patient has more difficulty identifying objects then with his left hand. One must be careful in interpreting the results of this test because of the patients motor deficits but there does seem to be astereognosis on the right, which would indicate left parietal lobe dysfunction. This is confirmed with graphesthesia where he definitely has more problems identifying numbers written on the right hand then the left (agraphesthesia of the right hand).
